Re: Network Naming Scheme

Gee, no geeks at heart here? I'm shocked!

I named my gear after anime series and characters myself.

Laptops/Tablets - Maybe Space Stations? Any ideas?

Cell Phones - Federation Ships

USS Endeavor. The most talked about but never seen ship in Star Trek lore.

I know! That is what I was thinking Hellfire. But I suppose a lot of people here work on business networks where a naming scheme isn't really efficient.

I've named my Galaxy SII cell phone the "USS Enterprise" since she was a Galaxy class starship.

They are efficient, just not flamboyant.

The standard I use for workstations at work is:
2 character BU code followed by two digit year code followed by two digit sequential number. This limits the deployment of no more than 99 computers at this BU per year. We recently adopted a 3 character BU code but there is no compelling reason for me to switch as of yet since there is no ambiguity with my 2 character BU code.

Our servers have a much more complex naming convention that I won't bother explaining.
